Nobody Said It Would Be Easy

“It’s all messy:
The hair. The bed.
The words. The heart.

~ William Leal

Have you felt it lately? A desperate internal cry for action. Your soul urging you to change something that’s just not working anymore. To drop a habit / behaviour / story that’s only been keeping you stuck and unhappy. To get really open, real and raw with the people in your life despite the fact that what you need to say might hurt like hell. To move away from the people and things that aren’t feeding your soul. To move closer to what lights you up.

Don’t run away yet. Sit with it all.

Sit with the messiness. Sit with the confusion. Sit with the crushing feeling on your chest when you realize that something that once felt so right is suddenly so wrong. Sit with the stunning revelation that maybe you don’t have it all figured out yet.

I promise you…

…the more you just sit with it without judgment, without the need to have it all figured out in your head, without the need to fix things…

…that’s where the beauty happens. That’s the place where you begin to hear your soul.

I hear you.
I feel it too.
Something is changing,
It’s raw and it’s real.
It’s exhilarating,
beautiful –
all at the same time.
Sit with it.
Feel it.
Acknowledge it.
Appreciate its presence.
It’s showing you
you’ve been hiding from,
that’s been too painful to look at.
One thing.
That could change

Be with it.

And only when you’re ready,
when you feel it in your bones,
when the confusion begins to lift,
when clarity hits,
when you feel like you can stand again.
Even if it breaks you apart.
Even if it destroys what you once thought to be true.
Even if it makes you question everything about
the world around you.

Only then.
Move through it.

Don’t be afraid to let go of what no longer serves you.
Hold dear to you what needs to remain.
Know that you’re moving into a new space,
a new dimension,
a new way of being.

Be with it.

Do it all over again.

    That’s a beautiful way to describe it! There’s so much beauty in just letting the experience be what it needs to be. I’m really glad we connected <3

    I was so here a year and a half ago.

    For me it was like a water fall, you have to walk through it to get to the cool cave behind but walking through it can be scary and painful. Walking through it was a crazy emotional ride but I’m so happy I made it to the awesome cave behind it. I know I’ll have to make this journey again and again, but right now I’m loving the cool cave.
